5 Things I Like about Montreal

As you might have guessed, we like Montreal's parks.  In September, I wrote about my hike in parc du Mont-Royal.  See more Mont-Royal photos at our Flickr page.  Other enjoyable design elements of the city include its street tree gardens, (we first wrote about them in August 2010); small squares; and infrastructure.  If you followed our Where in NYC? (Subway Series), you know we like subway art.  Like NYC, Montreal's Metro stations house art.

Do you know in which Metro station this stained glass art is located?

We like the dual function of this infrastructure: street lighting and sidewalk seating.

Square-Victoria, quiet in the early morning, is livened by commuters emerging from the Metro.
